The Witching Pen - Dianna Hardy

The Witching Pen - Dianna Hardy 

About the book:
(Book One of The Witching Pen Novellas) 

It's hard being the most powerful witch on the planet. It's even harder when you're a twenty-five year old virgin who'll lose all of that power the moment you sleep with someone ... that's why Elena's never slept with her best friend and flatmate, Karl, despite the true feelings they harbour for each other.

Elena's about to discover that there are even more difficult things in life to deal with. One of them comes in the form of a pen she discovers one day, a pen that allows anything she writes to come to pass...

Suddenly, it's not just her powers or her heart that's at stake, but her very soul, as a dream demon with a seductive pull uses the pen to try and turn her away from her reality, and from Karl.

But the pen is just the beginning. Everything Elena has believed in is a lie, and her world is about to fall apart...


My Review:
Picking up this the first book in the series, i found that i was consumed within it's pages from the very start. Elena as a character makes you want to keep reading you need to find out where she is going to go, what she is going to discover as there always seems to be skeletons in her closet. It's just you find out she is not the one hiding them, with very different relationships that she has between the other characters showing a whole range of emotions that are well written and realistic. She has flaws oh boy does she have flaws but this only adds to the story and what a story it is. She has to deal with coming to terms with the fact that she has been lied to and has missed out on a lot of life she never thought she could have, she faces soul searching decisions and life changing confessions. The story-line is gripping and full of action with the characters really making everything work so well. The depth and detail that the author go into in order to really ring you into Elena's world is amazing, she leaves only enough to the imagination for you to be able to picture every scene and emotion to it's full potential. I only gave this a 4/5 due to the fact that i just wanted that little bit more, not in a bad way i just  felt like i wanted to know more, feel more and learn more both in the background and with the characters. But by no means does this detract away from the amazing story that has been weaved by the author. For anyone out there wanting something to read that will captivate and draw them in, go and grab a copy of this book. I know i will be heading on the the next in the series and can't wait to find out what else the author has in store not only for the characters but for the readers.
